Yes, they can and they did.

They named it the "Airsense 10 AutoSet For Her" model, which can operate just like an Airsence 10 AutoSet (when the For Her model is set to "AutoSet" mode) or can operate in the new For Her mode.

I suppose they will soon be selling "skins" (stick-on coverings with various colors or patterns such as manly camouflage), like they also offer for the S9 machines.

Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment. The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.

Hi retired_guy,

It seems likely that the member you refer to actually had the good sense to order the AutoSet For Her model (although perhaps he was operating it in CPAP mode or standard AutoSet mode rather than in the new AutoSet For Her mode), because the setup manual for the A10 clearly says that RERA detection is recorded only by the AutoSet for Her model:

Detailed Data recorded:
Apnea or hypopnea events
CSR
RERA (AirSense 10 AutoSet for Her only)
Flow limitation (flat to round)
Leak (L/sec)
Minute ventilation (L/min)
Pressure (cm H2O / hPa)
Snore (quiet to loud)

Note that if using the AutoSet For Her model, RERA reporting occurs in all modes. The setup manual says:

"Respiratory Effort Related Arousals (RERA) reporting is available on the AirSense 10 AutoSet for Her in all modes."

"RERAs are periods of increasing respiratory effort which are terminated by an arousal. Increasing
respiratory effort will be seen as airflow limitation.These flow-based RERA events are logged and
stored as summary and/or detailed data and can then be viewed in one of ResMed's patient
management systems."

Thanks retired_guy, I've seem quite a few posts about larger cushions sometimes helping and so I've ordered the P10 with all cushion sizes to give me the best possible chance of it working for me Smile
